night, that after the u.s. department of education launched an investigation about four months ago and it specifically looked into oakland unified's zero tolerance policy when dealing with students. it found that it actually may be violating some students' civil rights. specifically right now african-american students make up about 32% of all students in oakland public schools, but they receive 63% of all the suspensions given out. in may the department of education's office of civil rights looked into whether the district treated black students more harshly than white students. the agreement means that there will be changes happening within the next five years. the district will move towards restorative type discipline instead of zero tolerance. now, instead of the initial 11 schools that they talked about, they'll roll this out in 38 of its 86 schools. what they want to do is bring down the suspension rate overall, including suspensions for african-american and special education students. they'll try and reduce defiance-related suspensions. civil advocates say that it's rather vague.
